January 2017

I am a film actor, voice over artist and a US Air Force Veteran. I am represented by Donna Gorff Talent Agency and my acting experience goes back to 2005 when I started doing a couple of short films and ended up performing as a background actor in movies and television commercials. Also, I have been accepted to the New York Film Academy in South Beach where I will earn my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Acting for Film.

My goal as a teacher is to teach young teens the basic skill sets that you would need for acting in film or even on a theatre stage. To do this, my curriculum includes script reading, breathing and speaking exercises, improv games, character development, and stage/film set etiquette. I will also include a few minutes of what I call "Mentor Time", in which I'll speak about the pros and cons of the entertainment industry, success through growth, overcoming personal flaws, and explain how acting can be used as an outlet from negative things.
